Complete Mobile Home Remodel


its a rusty tin roof, still working on getting it replaced. i intend to replace it with r-panel steel. and no, no gutters. no eaves either. pretty much a standard 1980 mobile home.

Ours is the same, starting to get small leaks in places. It also has these useless 1 inch "mini-gutters" that collect everything except water . Needless to say the previous owner got creative with caulk and roofing tar.....

Here's a question - The two sink drains and the washer drain are vented by under-counter vents, i think they are called AAV vents if im not mistaken. they are around thirty years old and original to the house. Do these need replaced before we hook up the water meter or are they fine to use?
The toilet and shower are vented by the main vent stack that goes through the roof.
as long as they are working they are fine but you have to have accsess to them. they do fail from time to time and you will smell sewer gas from them if they fail.

My company remodels dozens of trailers (and regular homes) each week, I install the usually stolen a/c systems in them. Amazing what can be done to a trailer, and a lot of room as well. Seen some high class trailers.

Take some pics OP.

Sorry about the pics, ive got a terrible memory. Anyway, i just wanted to give a small update, we replaced one piece of siding and I discovered that my dad apparently does NOT know what he is doing. So, i found a company, with impeccable references and an A+ rating, who is willing to come out and coat the roof, secure it down, and replace all of the siding for only $1,525.00.

Only thing i have to do is provide him 26 sheets of siding, 300' of trim, screws, and caulk. That is only $675.00 bought from Lowes, maybe cheaper from HD. $2250 total is not bad for siding and the roof, especially when i dont have to do it! the outside i think might just get contracted out, we will continue to DIY the inside, but the outside is just outside of my capabilities.

ok tons of progress! i wouldve posted last night but i dont have a home pc. Anyway, we finished the insulation and drywall in the bathroom, cleaned all of the soap scum, dirt, and old caulk out of the bathtub, and even got the bathtub installed. We also measured out and marked the spot to drill the hole for the drain pipe in the bathroom vanity cabinet. My mom is out there today while im working, she is mudding and taping the bathroom and i have to go tonight and get the shower walls and the paint. The picture of the electric shows the front wall is still wallpapered, i plan to sand it down a little and paint right over it, i didnt see the need to tear it out. I cant believe we are this close to done with the bathroom! Pics Pics Pics!!!

im sure most of you know this, but for those of you who dont, thats greenboard drywall in the bathroom, not paint. No way i would ever paint my bathroom such a dark color when it is already tiny.
